Default Nicad Cycler... how much current is too much?

Just got my first Nicad Cycler/fast charger to use with my 600mah Rx & 700mah Tx battery packs. Not a make you'd probably know -got it in Hong Kong. It is designed to charge 4-8 cell packs of anything up to 3500mah. The discharge rate it uses is 4amps and minimum fast charge rate is 500mamps (0.5A) which seems to peak my 600mah packs in about 20mins. Are these discharge & charge rates too high for these low mah nicad packs?... I don't want to overstrain these packs and end up loosing a model...
